Each year, RadioWest sits down for in-depth conversations with filmmakers and producers during the Sundance Film Festival. Just like the festival, the RadioWest team has eclectic taste. We hope you enjoy the diversity of topics as much as we do.

Sundance: ‘Misha and the Wolves’

Courtesy of Sundance Institute

It had all the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster: The memoir of a young Jewish girl living in Germany in the 1940s who escaped Nazi persecution by fleeing to the woods and living with a pack of wolves. 

And yet, the true story of Misha: A Mémoire of the Holocaust Years is even more fascinating. In our on-going coverage of the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, we’ll talk with director Sam Hobkinson about his film Misha and the Wolves, a deep exploration into the life of the memoir’s author, Misha Defonseca. It’s one of those stories – and indeed, films – where nothing is quite as it seems. Please join us Monday at 11 a.m. for our conversation about this wild tale. 

For more information about Misha and the Wolves, a World Cinema Documentary selection in the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, go to festival.sundance.org.
